Saturday SW and I went to my friends for an Open House Party. To me this was a big deal. It was the first time I was going to a “Cancer Buddy’s” house to meet his “Well” friends and family.
The purpose of the party was to inform others that the treatment regiment was changing; support is needed.
What I saw at the party was an amazing group of people ready to bend over backwards for their friend and his family. It warmed my heart. I was relieved to see this fabulous support system and proud to be part of it.
I can’t speak on behalf of all people with life threatening illnesses but for me having a strong support team makes my hell of a situation bearable. Looking at the smile on my friends face last night, it made his day too. Support people, like those reading this blog, are a critical component to our lives. Thank you for taking this job on and making it a priority in your life. Please continue it as long as you can.
